Low interest rates, high interest rates - it just does not seem to matter to the long suffering renters. So if interest rates don't seem to matter, what are you left with? Local government?

According to data from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, condos owned and rented out by private investors make up about 40 per cent of all market-rate apartments in Metro Vancouver.

Aging in place is a big deal in housing co-ops as original cooperators get older and try to remain in affordable units in urban centres, often becoming over housed as family members depart.

Faced with a need for accessible homes so that older members can stay in their communities, three Ontario housing co-ops have built new homes.

This is not a loophole. Nor is it bizarre. Nor does it belong before the Tribunal - because there is no dispute. It's the Ministry trying to deflect on a rule they allowed that has been with us for a long time.

I had not considered this perfect storm - we need more immigration to address the labour shortage to cool inflation but there is no where to house the counted and uncounted newcomers thus putting upward pressure on rents and inflation.

Canada’s explosive population growth from immigration is causing rents to surge in its biggest cities. And there’s another problem: The country isn’t even properly counting the number of people who need homes.
